I was browsing through Instagram and following that visual rabbit hole as far as it could go, when I stopped at a picture of Bun House and Tea Room in Soho. Bao buns are booming in London and instead of Taiwanese style Bao buns, Bun House serves Chinese style buns. This means that instead of being open, they are closed. And like the best presents what they contain inside is all kinds of perfect…

As a petite woman I still have to be convinced by boyfriend jeans. They look amazing in theory but then as soon as I put on a pair I look like a small child playing dress up. No thank you.

Barry’s West has arrived! After four years in London, the studio has finally opened their third studio in Queensway and last week I had the chance to try an exclusive Nike x Barry’s West class led by Mr PMA himself, Faisal.

Perhaps that’s why nothing in Alvie’s life has ever gone right? Until now.

She can finally abandon her credit card debt – and her fruitless three-way relationship with Tinder and Twitter – when fate gives her the chance to steal her identical twin’s perfect life.

It’s just a shame Beth had to die to make Alvie’s dreams come true.

So begin seven days of sex, violence and unapologetic selfies – one wild week that sees Alvie break every rule in the book. She never did have much respect for boundaries.

It might be madness, but rules are meant to be broken. Right?

Meet Alvina Knightley: uncensored, unhinged, and unforgettable. And most definitely capital letters: AGFHDJFKGFKK this book was so much more than I was expecting and I absolutely loved it.
